Welcome - Great things happen every day with CARC.


We are the Cumberland Amateur Radio Club.

South-Central Pennsylvania communities served by CARC include Carlisle, Boiling Springs, Mount Holly Springs, Newville, Shippensburg, New Cumberland, Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, Enola, Lewisberry, Dillsburg, Elizabethtown, and York Springs. 

Our primary focus involves Cumberland County, Pennsylvania as well as the nearby parts of Adams, York, Perry and Dauphin counties.  If you live somewhere else don't let that stop you from participating. We will be pleased to welcome you into our club and add your location to this list. 

Thanks for stopping in today.  Click your mouse, or point your finger. See what we have to offer.  If you want to return remember www.RadioClub-CARC.com


If you saw us at the Mechanicsburg Community Day in the Park event and looked us up on-line then I have a very special Welcome and Thank You for you.  It is very nice of you to take an interest in our club.  My contact information is behind the Our People tab in case you have questions unanswered by this web site.
